I would guess RedHat (and by default CentOS) will stay with OpenOffice for a
while to see what
a) Oracle are going to do with it
b) How many people sing LibreOffice's praises
Once it hits beta, I will install it to see how it goes. The way Oracle is
acting towards Open Source I will likely stay with LibreOffice and also
start learning PosgreSQL just so I have no Oracle products (in much the same
way I have no M$ products (in my personal life))...
